Atlético Madrid return to the Metropolitano on Tuesday after suffering another away defeat, this time to Athletic Club at San Mamés and head coach Diego Simeone could make up to three changes for their league meeting with Getafe.
Stefan Savic looks set to return to the backline where he will join Mario Hermoso and Axel Witsel, two key players for Simeone in defence. The versatile Marcos Llorente, who played in midfield at San Mamés, will return to the right wing, while Roro Riquelme is expected to feature on the left wing, after three consecutive starts there for Samu Lino, who recently netted against Lazio.
AS report that Lino will play in the centre of midfield alongside club captain Koke and World Cup winner Rodrigo de Paul, who will return to the fold. Up front there will be no surprises as creator and goalscorer Antoine Griezmann will once again play alongside Álvaro Morata.
Possible Atlético Madrid XI vs Getafe
Oblak – Llorente, Savic, Witsel, Hermoso, Riquelme – Lino, Koke, De Paul – Griezmann, Morata.
